Thank you for the work put into this document.

Please find below some non-blocking COMMENT points (but replies would be
appreciated), and two nits.

I hope that this helps to improve the document,




For many comments, please bear with my lack of expertise in HTTP in general.

-- Section 1.1 --
This section mixes "HTTP/1.1" and "HTTP/1.x" and it is unclear to me what the
link is between the first 2 sentences.

-- Section 3.1 --
In "clients SHOULD attempt to use TCP-based versions of HTTP in this case."
Should the version(s) of HTTP be specified or is it done on purpose to allow a
HTTP/4 over TCP (if ever) ?

-- Section 4.2 --
Should this section mention the work in MASQUE? While I am not really familiar
with MASQUE, isn't it using the CONNECT H/2 method (e.g.,
draft-ietf-masque-connect-udp albeit for UDP) ?

-- Section 4.4 --
Should the client behavior be specified when server does not respect "A server
SHOULD use Push IDs sequentially, beginning from zero. " ?

-- Section 5.3 --
Should the CONNECT method behavior be specified when the client does an
immediate closure?

-- Section 5.4 --
Should the server behavior be specified when the QUIC transport aborts ? It is
mostly obvious that all states will be cleared but what about the CONNECT
method ?

-- Section 11.2.1 and others --
I must admit that the purpose of the special "0x1f * N + 0x21" values are
unknown to me (or is it only for application padding as described in the
security section?) but shouldn't they be reserved in the IANA registry?

== NITS ==

-- Section 1 --
" These semantics have most commonly been used with
   HTTP/1.1, over a variety of transport and session layers, and with
   HTTP/2 over TLS. "

The asymmetric use of comas is puzzling, should there be a coma after "HTTP/2" ?

-- Section 11.2 --
Should "and a contact of the HTTP working group (ietf-http-wg@w3.org)." rather
be "and a contact of the W3C HTTP working group (ietf-http-wg@w3.org)." ?
